Goodbye Vox

What was my Vox page at verbal.vox.com.

I’m extremely late in posting this, but it’s time to say goodbye to Vox. I hosted this blog there for a while – from July 2006 to June 2008.

The appeal of Vox, to me, was the community that was created during its inception. I found it easy to connect with people who shared common interests from various places around the world. Vox also allowed a user to post privately or to a specific group of people you designated. Unfortunately in order to comment on any post you had to be a Vox member.

Vox’s other limitations – lack of customization, lack of exporting data, lack in using a personal domain, and displaying of advertising you couldn’t control – made Vox not worth the trouble. People I had connected with started to drop off, going back to their personal web sites (e.g. WordPress, Movable Type, etc). Thus ended my time at Vox.

I plan to import the view posts I have from Vox into this blog. They’ll be tagged appropriately, probably something as simple as “Vox”.

It was good while it lasted.
